Restoring confidence: Will the self-funding care market thrive in the wake of Covid-19?
HealthInvestor UK’s editor Rob Munro was joined by Tom Hartley of care sector analysts Carterwood to discuss the future of the self-pay care home sector.
The lack of availability of testing and PPE combined with high death rates has had a devastating effect on public perception of the care sector and, despite heroic efforts by operators and investors, it will take considerable time before confidence is restored.
In the light of these sobering facts, what does the future hold for the self-pay market? Has the Covid-19 pandemic permanently damaged its reputation or will higher-end care homes become more popular as they offer greater protection from infection while the threat from Covid-19 lingers?
Tom answers these and other questions based on the results of Carterwood’s latest research into the self-pay market.

In our latest webinar, HealthInvestor UK’s editor Rob Munro was joined by Catherine Davies, managing partner of Monticle and Gabrielle Silver, chief executive of CHS Healthcare.
Traditionally the relationship between public and private sectors in healthcare has been less than perfect but the tragic events of the Covid-19 pandemic have seen the two sides come together and work in new and innovative ways.
From providing extra bed capacity to re-purposing production lines to manufacture ventilators and PPE, to developing and deploying cutting edge medical technology, businesses and entrepreneurs have demonstrated their ability to support health and social care providers across the sector. But will this lead to a permanent shift in how we view the role of business and investors in the delivery of publicly funded services or will the old ideological battle lines be redrawn in the post-Covid world?
